The Smallholder Farmers Alliance is one of the sponsors, and we are represented by Timote Georges as a panelist and Hugh Locke as the moderator. The lineup includes a stellar group of people in the forefront of shaping regenerative agriculture including corporate, foundation and consulting practitioners. We are particularly pleased that Chonchaya Chanrawin, a smallholder farm leader from Thailand, is one of the panelists.
As we shared in a recent newsletter, Haiti is home to one of the most important trial sites for regenerative agriculture in the world and the results are expected to be adopted by smallholder farmers outside our borders. While not yet a household name, regenerative agriculture is emerging as the new global gold standard for sustainable farming. Rather than contributing to climate change like much of conventional farming, this holistic system of land management actually helps to reverse climate change by making measurable improvements to farmland, biodiversity and the environment in the course of producing nutritious food, fiber and other products.
